JMT/Verve recording artist Gabrielle Goodman brings her sultry voice, delicate phrasing, and adventurous vocal improvisations to the Arsenal Center for the Arts in a concert of jazz favorites and songs from her new, gospel-inflected album, Spiritual Tapestry. She’ll be joined by Yoron Israel (drums), Ron Reid (bass), Jiri Nedoma (piano), and special guest John Baboian (guitar), who is the director of the Jazz at the Arsenal series. With a voice like an angel, Goodman promises to stir your soul and set your spirit on fire!
Goodman’s diverse musical talent has afforded her the opportunity to work with artists of legendary status and tour the world, performing in China, Russia, Japan, Europe, and throughout the United States. Known for a variety of music (jazz, pop, R&B, soul, and Brazilian), she has performed and/or recorded with Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Kevin Eubanks, Quincy Jones, and Patti LaBelle, among many others. Flack has called her "one of the best singers around today."
Among Goodman’s many talents, she is a composer, arranger, and educator, serving full time on the Berklee College of Music faculty. She’s been featured with the Boston Pops, Baltimore Symphony, and Tokyo’s Yamayuri Symphony Orchestra, performing classical, jazz, and gospel music.
